YouTube v.s. Vimeo – The Faceoff

by Dionne Aiken

When it comes to video embedding and sharing, there are many options such as BlipTV2, Flickr, and Photobucket just to name a few.  However two leaders that continue to stand out among all others as the top video streaming services are YouTube and Vimeo.

Perhaps it has to do with the fact that Youtube and Blogger are somehow related via Google.
